Watercolor Minis

Well, I finally have returned to my project of using all of my retired Stampin' Up! sets. I think I am about half done, but I had put it on hold for several months. We'll see how long I can keep it up this time. I feel "stifled" by it.

The set I'm using today is called "Watercolor Minis." It consists of twelve small, two-step stamps. For this first card, I used four of the stamps - two for the leaves and two for the roses. I randomly stamped them on the cardstock. It looked a little plain, so I added the "bling." The "Celebrate" is from the set called "Wonderful Words."
For this card, I used the other eight stamps. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I matted with olive cardstock and mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I really like both cards, but you did a really good job randomly stamping those little yellow flowers around. I almost thought it was a designer paper. Very pretty!

Just as Vicki said, I thought you used designer paper and the "Celebrate" stamp on your first card! I guess you are talented enough to design patterned paper if you ever wanted to give up "your day job!"

Very pretty! I used to have this set, too. You've been very creative with it. Love the yellow, especially. It hasn't worked out for me to use my next-on-the-list SU! set. Christmas, Valentines, design team stuff. It's a set I really like, though. You feel stifled, I feel over crowded. Really thinking I need to thin out my stamp room.
